“Great time with racing Accelerate EE, Henry, Izzuddin, and crew today. Thanks Coach, Dakota for your safety tips and racing tips for the track. Very much appreciate all that the Dulles, VA crew does for the Junior Racing League.”
Had a “Team Building” event with my work family. We had a wonderful outing! Not crowded at all — we went mid-day during the week (best time to go). Customer service was excellent ( Caitlin G., was our host; she was awesome and very helpful). The carts are super fast; the ax throwing is a change of pace and fun as well. Highly recommend for a fun time out with family and/or friends!
WONDERFUL place! We went on a Thursday to avoid the weekend crowd! Shak and John were AWESOME! Axe throwing and racing both were the perfect ways to let off some steam. If you have a competitive streak, go with a friend and keep score during the axe throwing games. Good value package for axe throwing and racing combo. I’ll definitely be going back!
My son and I always have a blast when we visit. Brandon is very friendly and got us out on the track swiftly.
So much fun! The people working were on point and so helpful! Lil jon and Brenden, you guys are the real ones, kept everything rolling smooth and kept it fun for everyone, these guys don’t get paid enough, best customer service in the game! I’ll be back for that fastest lap time, y’all are some great energy to be around and I enjoyed my time and money spent wayyy to much! Thanks for giving us a great time. I’m still smiling and looking forward to my next encounter with y’all! Much appreciated.
What a great find! Totally unplanned, we discovered this fun, locally owned axe- throwing bar and more. Sky was terrific tending bar and Brian was a super throwing coach/ server. We were just visiting the area from Baltimore but highly recommend this to folks living in Chicago.
Had an amazing time! Fast go karts, clean facility and staff is amazing!
I’ve worked with this company and am blown away not just by their culture, engaged employees, and gorgeous facilities (which are perfect for combining rip-roaring fun and a meeting/training session), but also their $10,000 all electric go-karts are mind-blowing.
I would give this place 10 stars if I could! What an amazing experience…it was just pure fun, fun, fun!
It was fun to have an idea of how to drive since i’ve never been behind the wheel of a vehicle before.
The presentation taught me that I had to pay attention and change my speed at different points on the track.
Made the connection with friction and the tires when I spun out.
Food was great, it was fun to watch the teachers race, the arcade games were fun.
Fun, fun fun! Did I say fun?!
Pit crew amazing! Came with my family for a junior party Sunday… the girl with the blue hair made sure they all were secured in their carts each time. Kids loved it.
My friends and I went there for a bachelor party and we had an amazing time! The karts and axes are why we went there, but the friendly staff and the great experience are why we’re coming back!
This is a great place for children as well as adults. The service was outstanding!! I will definitely return.
Great Fun! Came with my family today and enjoyed every minute! 10/10 would recommend to everyone!
Had such a great experience. The staff at the front desk were amazing. Highly recommend for all events.
This place is OFF THE CHAIN (street parlance) OMG I had so much fun. I’ll be back!!!
The price is so worth it!! High speed fun. Axe throwing, an arcade and a bar. Recommend for any group looking for fast fun.
Excellent place for an adult date night!! Karting, Drinks & Food, along with good hospitality from our waitresses Kara and Issac.
The staff is so nice and does a great job keeping the kids safe. My son loves racing here.
